Era By Monica Kakembo

I want to connect.
Not over some ones and o’s,
Not really.
Those just make everyone a little less human
and a lot less honest.
I want to look at you
and stretch my arm out
and feel that there’s someone else standing there.
You know?
Someone just like me,
Bone and flesh.
Like we used to do
when we were younger.
